The Audio Engineering Society has begun to announce program details for the upcoming Virtual Vienna Convention, including three keynote lectures and the Heyser Presentation.

The Audio Engineering Society has raised more than $159,000 USD since the launch of its COVID-19 pandemic-driven fundraising campaign in mid-April with a goal of raising $500,000 by June 1. More than 170 individuals, making donations ranging from $10 to $4500, have been joined by corporations and organizations — 21 new names have been added to the educational non-profit AES's Sustaining Member roster. "The AES is grateful for the validation of its importance to the professional audio industry by each and every contributor that is helping at whatever level they can," said AES President Agnieszka Roginska.

The Audio Engineering Society has not proven immune to the havoc the COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking across the globe. The traditional cashflow of the Society, fueled by its events, has been severely disrupted. The AES has launched a fundraising campaign to ensure the Society's continued operation through the crisis. The goal of the initiative is to raise $500,000 USD by June 1. In an appeal to AES stakeholders, AES President Agnieszka Roginska acknowledged that many AES members, and many among the Society's manufacturer and service provider partners, are facing their own challenges in this time of global upheaval. "Others," said Roginska in her letter, "may be in a more stable position and able to once again contribute to the Society. If it is within your ability, may we ask that you make a financial contribution to help see your AES through these unprecedented times?"
